Court strikes down state requiring PARCC test for graduation

January 2, 2019

“I think it’s a very good ruling. It’s a very thoughtful ruling. It’s appropriate,” said Julia Sass Rubin, member of Save Our Schools NJ and associate professor at the Bloustein School of Planning and Public Policy at Rutgers University.
